    Clean the magazine tube. There is probably buildup of bullet lube. Try to use ammo that has less greasy/waxy lube.

SOURCE: loading data for leverevolution bullets in a Winchester 94 rifle?

Here are some basic .30-30 specifications of interest to handloaders: bullet diameter .307-.308", maximum COL 2.455", maximum case length 2.039", MAP 38,000 cup.
Medium burning rate rifle powders work best in the .30-30 with bullets in the popular 150-170 grain weight range. Examples of popular powders include IMR 3031, IMR 4895, H335, H4895, RL-15, and W748. For decades I have used IMR 3031 behind the 150 grain Speer or 150 grain Sierra Flat Point bullets and CCI or Winchester primers with excellent results.
The Hodgdon Data Manual No. 26 shows that 31.0 grains of IMR 3031 powder will drive a 150 grain bullet to a MV of 2184 fps, and 33.0 grains of IMR 3031 will drive a 150 grain bullet to a MV of 2364 fps.
The same source shows that 30.0 grains of H4895 powder will give a 170 grain bullet a MV of 1919 fps, and 32.0 grains of H4895 will give the 170 bullet a MV of 2212 fps.
An unusual load with very low recoil that is excellent for plinking and small game or varmint hunting with a .30-30 rifle is a 100 grain bullet in front of 15.0 grains of SR 4759 powder for a MV of 1834 fps, or 18.0 grains of SR 4759 for a MV of 2034 fps. These loads give excellent accuracy in my Winchester Model 94.

Can u please ecplsin why when u put a bullet in the breavh with your fingers the bolt wont close but when u put it in the magazine it goes in and locks done fine is thst a saftey system

I think you are asking for an EXPLANATION of why, when you put a bullet in a CHAMBER with your fingers the bolt won't close but when you put the bullet in the magazine, it goes in the chamber and the bolt locks DOWN fine. Is THAT a safety system?

No, it is not a safety system. I am assuming that you are speaking of a standard BOLT ACTION rifle in a centerfire caliber configuration. The extractor, located near the bolt face is why it won't close. When you put the bullet into the chamber and then try to shut the bolt, the extractor has to jump over the rim of the shell casing. When you place the bullet in the magazine and then shut the bolt, the bolt face pushes the bullet up out of the magazine allowing the rim of the case to slide between the bolt face and the extractor claw and feed into the chamber. After firing or if you simply just want to remove the bullet from the chamber, pulling the bolt rearward, the extractor claw hangs onto the rim until the case hits an extractor bar causing the shell to fly out of the rifle.
A good question.
I would suggest a firearms training session. Check with the NRA or a local gun club for help.

Need to know if a rifle I want to buy is legal, Marlin Rifle 22 L R Model 60 LETTER V MADE 1961[AUGUST]1962

Legal in what way? If is stolen only the police would have the serial number flagged. If is is .22 long rifle it is a restricted firearm, so depends on the laws wherever you live. In most countries it needs to be registered.The limit for antique weapons is 1896, and in such cases, the ammunition needs to be obsolete, or the weapon is a smooth bore musket. None of that applies to this weapon.

What years was the marlin model 36 lever action .22 made

The Model 36 was introduced in 1936 by Marlin Firearms as an improved version of the Model 1893. Around the time of the First World War, Marlin dropped the "18" and started calling the Model 1893, the Model 93. But no significant change in the gun's design took place. In the period between the wars, metalurgy was changing, as were manufacturing techniques. So Marlin upgraded the Model 93 and re-designated it the Model 1936. This moniker lasted only one year, and in 1937 it became the Model 36.
Model 36s were made until the Second World War. In 1948, the Model 36 was redesigned and modernized again and was given a round bolt to replace the square . The model number was again changed to Model 336. Lots of versions and lots of small changes have been made since, but variations of the Model 336 are still in production.
